The White Hat Guide to
The Iwaki Auditorium is a small concert hall that is part of the ABC
complex at Southbank close to
the Melbourne Arts Centre. It seats about 200
people and is well suited to chamber and solo performances. It is often used
by the ABC for live broadcasts , particularly for the Sunday Live program on
ABC Classic FM.
The auditorium is the rehearsal studio for the Melbourne Symphony
Orchestra and is also used as a recording studio. It is named after
Hiroyuki Iwaki, the Japanese born conductor whose long association
with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra resulted in him being that orchestra's
first Conductor Laureate. Maestro Iwaki died in June 2006.
Some forthcoming performances at the Iwaki Auditorium:
The Mozart Jam - Jams for Juniors 0-5
Children aged 0-5 and their adults can explore, play and join in with
Symphony Orchestra in these musical workshops.
Presented by educator, composer and conductor, Karen Kyriakou this jam
focuses on one of the greatest classical composers of all time -
White Hat recommends early booking as these events
usually sell out in advance.
